Default Diesel heaters

Has anyone got experience of these things?
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5KW-12V-D....c100005.m1851

I've seen one from a reputable 4x4 shop for 800 Euros, so not expecting huge things from this.
Any experience?
Any recommendations?
It'd extend the camping season somewhat...

Thereís a lot of reviews and fitting videos on YouTube. The feedback Iíve seen is pretty good too. The fuel pump tends to tick and can be loud of placed incorrectly. I donít like the way the fuel line attaches to the plastic fuel tank provided. Personally I think they look good but think it might be better to run a feed from main vehicle fuel tank and place the pump maybe underneath the vehicle but protected from the elements.

A friend has one fitted to his R###e R###r ( sorry for swearing) and tells me it is incredibly efficient, and very cheap to run.

He has a separate battery system for it, and can remotely fire it up to heat/defrost the car without starting it.

It is so efficient he is going to rig one up in his barn of a garage, with ducting to direct the heating strategically, and possibly use red diesel to reduce costs.....

Not connecting to anything as such, but running hoses into the tents to take the edge off the cold.

This is the air pipe used in caravans, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Truma-luf...edirect=mobile

I have the 8kw version,worked straight out of the box, limited heat in my workshop but a tank runs for 11/2 days and takes the chill off.
If its for a camper or vehicle i have seen discussions that a 5kw is enough.
Also they make a version that heats water as well.
